Ha, you know how much practice I'm getting everyday? ;)
Oh yeah...I'm Avatar insane. It will pass in due time. But in the meantime, Avatar Avatar Avatar! GEt these silly ideas out of my head.

I need to stop lurking your journal xD
LOL at the "Agni what?"

Jun. 20th, 2007 07:43 am (UTC)
Eh, lurking is all good with me, I don't mind ( I kinda do it too, so...)
Poor Zhao. No one is there to tell him finer points of fire nation culture, including the time honored tradition of firebending duels.

So. I totally stalk you on Deviantart, and when I found out you were posting the Zhao Water Tribe AU to your LJ I have started to stalk here as well to read further. I just wanted to say that I love your stories, your humor, your art. Whenever I meet anyone who is into Avatar one of my first questions is always "HAVE YOU SEEN RUFFTOON'S COMICS?! :D" and linking them ASAP if they haven't.

*cough* Yes, so. I just wanted to say I love the story thus far, I can't wait to see where you go with it, and while I normally have the fangirl kneejerk eyetwitch to OCs, instead the fangirl in my heart is going "...ZHAO x THAT GIRL OTP." Because Zhao needs some love and she's freaking adorable.

Also... NOW the trouble starts? Man, I'm worried if what happened to him before wouldn't be considered 'trouble' in respect to this! o_o

Aww, thank you. Apologies first for not updating the other AU on DA, there are a few panels giving me trouble. Grrr! Even though they are rough, I'm really starting to want to make them look good. Dang it.

Haha, nope, sorry, nothing will be happening between that girl and Zhao. He's barely noticing her, and all she's interested in is his exotic stories of that far away place called the North Pole.

Your ability to deck these out and keep such a wonderful quality never ceases to amaze me! XD I'm really looking forward to more of this after all you've told me today :)

Agni Kai!
Agni what?
*Aflack duck jumps in* AFLAK!

And he can't firebend (at least, not consciously).
Oh yeah, he's lost.

Holy (*@9!
Some obnoxious dude just got challenged him to an Agni Kai!
And I know what that means! MORE SHIRTLESS GUYS! >D *SQUEEEEEEEE!*

Man...I never expected that someone would challenge him to an Agni Kai soon, I remember vaguely that in your previous entries, one of your readers mentioned that he might be challenged to an Agni Kai soon. But I didn't actually think it would be right now! >D YEY!

(Me and my stupid memory~! It's the little things I remember very well and yet I managed to forget lessons about Math and History in high school >_<;)

HAY I LIKE OLDER MEN. :)

I don't know how you do it! You keep churning out pages, and they seem to get cleaner and better with every page!

Agni What? Well, Zhao's a fast learner.
rufftoon
Jun. 20th, 2007 08:19 am (UTC)
Definitely older men for me too (then again, I am older, but I do also prefer them pass the "pretty boy" stage)
Heck, I don't know how I do it. I cheat a lot on these pages, I guess, making wonky perspective here and there, keeping 'em rough.

Ah, I am tempted to give away what happens next. Must...resist! Must draw pages instead!

I don't think anyone in the fire nation ever expected one of its own citizen to be so clueless.

No pun intended but you are seriously on fire! How the heck do you manage to stay busy and still update?? Er..no other comment that hasn't been said already..other than incoherent mumbling.."Agni whut?"..*laughs*
rufftoon
Jun. 20th, 2007 03:52 pm (UTC)
There's definitely a little burning smell coming off around me these days. Hope it's not a bad sign.
Hehe, "agni whut", said with a very dumb voice, is just too perfect (why do I want to keep screaming "Matt Damon" like the guys at work...)

"Agni what?" hehehe

Although this actually brings up an interesting point about Fire Nation culture--what does a non-firebender do if challenged?

Another small typo, first page, first box: "Glad I managed to wipe off that stupid smile off his face." The first "off" isn't needed.

Poor spa-OC... guess the glimpse of Water Tribe "swimwears" was too much for her. XD
rufftoon
Jun. 20th, 2007 03:55 pm (UTC)
I'm going to go and have a look in the little "Fire Nation travel guide book" for that.
Gah, more typo. Not surprised- stoopid english is not my first language. Ah well, live and learn, and thanks for poiting these out, very much appreciated!

If I was to spot those "swimwears"...I'd be done for too.

aahhh zhao could beat him anyway. Look at those wimpy sideburns the kid has. He doesnt stand a chance. ;)

I love you forever. Please imagine an icon of your Azula laughing hysterically here (the one from when Zuko found the kitten in his robes). Only animated.

Re: Agni What?
Heehee, thanks.
I'm just here to throw troubles at Zhao :D
alexds1
Jun. 20th, 2007 03:21 pm (UTC)
XD Can they just do that? How would that guy know that Zhao is a fire bender? Or maybe Agni Kai can also be with fists... either way if this doesn't culminate in more shirtless Zhao I'm going to be very, very disappointed.

Don't draw faster, you might friction your hands off D:
rufftoon
Jun. 20th, 2007 04:10 pm (UTC)
First you throw a challenge, then you see what comes of it. Those fire nation people, way too eager to get into fights...
I guess usually one of the two says he's not a firebender, and then gets to retreat in shame at being a nonbender or something (with possibly a lot of jeering and tauting from his opponent). Or maybe they do have scaled down versions of Agni Kai, for non benders.

Fantastic expressions, as always! I really like this close interaction scenes. And that last panel is priceless!

Out of curiosity, is Zhao still living off his weapon funds? I imagine it's expensive to live here. And since the Fire Nation is rather bureaucratic, I bet it would be difficult for someone like him to just wander in and start working/establishing himself.
rufftoon
Jun. 21st, 2007 12:52 am (UTC)
Yup, still living off his weapons fund and that is disappearing very quickly. And yeah, unless he goes for grunt work, finding a way to live there is not going to be that easy (unless he goes wild and lives in the forests on the volcano slopes ;) )
sparklemagpie
Jun. 20th, 2007 07:10 pm (UTC)
AAHAHAHAHA! XD Oh GOD that's PRICELESS! Poor Zhao, but I LOVE the look that Yueh's face in that last panel! <333
rufftoon
Jun. 21st, 2007 12:54 am (UTC)
Thank you!
So Zhao caused Yue to become the moon, and now he faces another different Yueh (with an "H")...there's a pattern!!

now THATS a shyamalan twist XD

i am LOVING the Zhaoka story Johane :D

and i hope ur mum feels better soon :) *hugs*
rufftoon

I ain't doing no Shyamalan twist...I wouldn't be able to pull it off decently anyway.
But hah! Who knows, they may be related ;)

Whoa! An Agni Kai?! Zhao sure has a lot of Fire Nation culture to catch up on if he wants to survive there. And the look on that guy's face in the last panel is really funny, too.
rufftoon
Jun. 21st, 2007 08:30 am (UTC)
The Agni Kai should have been the last thing for him to catch up with- he's not ready for that yet.

Yeah, she's having a little fangirlism crush over this mysterious man who has stories of this exotic foreign frozen place...makes her dream :)
Poor Zhao- he'll have to learn quite a few fire nation customs really quickly (and not just Agni Kai challenges)

When you're a young soldier looking for prospects, you want the girls looking your way, not at older stock.
